Beaulieu Cricket Field

From Historical Hastings

The Beaulieu Cricket Field was located on The Ridge, next to Hydneye House and was home to Beaulieu Cricket Club. Whilst primarily used as a cricket venue, other activities such as archery and shows took place and was used by Hastings & Bexhill Rugby Club in 1997 when their pitches at William Parker School were being worked on.Planning permission was granted in 1988 for the erection of an indoor cricket centre,[1] which had been built by 1990.[2] The indoor cricket centre was known as 'Boundaries' and in 1992 was bought by Kings Church, who rebranded the venue as the 'Hastings Centre' when not being used by the church.[3]The remaining field seems to be unused for any sporting use.
